are other officials saying, other u.s. officials saying about the iran problem as it relates to what's going on in afghanistan right now? >> well, the intelligence that was leaked in that massive leak says that iran has been actively involved in arming, training, and funding the taliban against the u.s. military, against our coalition partners. so this morning, on fox news, senator kit bond, who's the vice chairman of the senate intelligence committee was asked about the iran factor. here's what he had to say: >> i'm not going to go into any secret or classified information, but what has come out i think reinforces what many of us have been saying all along, iran is not an ally or a party that we can cozy up to and make nice to and expect that they will work with us. >> reporter: other u.s. officials i tiewkd today says that iran has medicaleled in afghanistan for years, providing weapons at a low level to militants who are fighting against the coalition. so the u.s. is pretty well convinced that iran has played a very bad role in afghanistan as the u.s. has believed that it played in iraq a

the most controversial provisions in lot. u.s. district judge susan bolton issued a law that stops some of it from going into effect. that police stop or detain or arrest if there's a reasonable suspicion they're in the country illegally, a provision requiring immigrants to carry their papers at all times. and another that would make it a crime for undocumented workers to seek work in public places. in a statement, the justice department had said the court ruled correctly that a patchwork of state and local policies would seriously disrupt immigration enforcement and would ultimately be counterproductive. but arizona's governor jan brewer had a different perspective. >> i think it's important to remind everybody that today, absolutely, the federal government got relief from the courts to do their job. and that means now they've got this temporary injunction, they need step up, the feds do, and do the job that they have the responsibility to do for the people of america. and for the people of arizona. >> the specifics of the state's appeal of the ruling have not been announced but legal

rangel was a prosecutor for one year, give him credit for that, an assistant u.s. attorney himself, but let's not get started thoon point. it's possible but i don't think you're going to see criminal charges. i think what you're going to see is either a, he resolves this and survives or b, he doesn't resolve it and it goes badly. i don't see him, if everybody follows me, not resolving it and having it go well, because over your point that it's serious. bill: thank you doug for coming in today. former prosecutor from new york. also, e-mail me, follow me on twitter, you got a question, one line, that's all we need. keep it simple. arthel: you better watch out bill, there's something bad lurking in the waters off the coast of massachusetts. sharks, sighted off the coast of cape cod, a very popular spot for tourists and beach bums. >> i wouldn't go any deeper than like 10 feet personally, but with all the seals along there, you know they're going to eat them so why would you want to be near them. >> we want to know what's luring the sharks there. we're going to ask the experts in three
